Storyline: The Magic, coming off a disheartening loss to the Chicago Bulls that snapped Orlando’s five-game winning streak, catch a break when they play a Raptors team that has won seven straight and owns the league’s second best record. Kawhi Leonard won’t play for rest purposes. For the Magic, who sit 1.5 games behind the Hornets for the eighth spot in the East, it’s an opportunity that must be capitalized on.
